Photo of the day

This is actually a pic I took a few weeks ago, but its so weird that even though I posted it on Facebook I still wanted to document it here on my blog, too.  Its not a technically good pic by any means, it was taken with an iPhone.  I was driving home from a friend's house that I hadn't seen in a long time.  When I got to the stop light at the entrance to her neighborhood, I looked down and this is what I saw.

Yes, I know, the speedometer shows I was driving when I took it.  In my defense, I tried to take it while waiting for the light to change but the camera app froze up on me and took a minute to open.  I hurried and shot it right after I went through the stoplight because I was afraid the temp would change or the odometer would roll over.  It was late at night and there was no other traffic, so the roads were empty. 

But how weird are all those 5's?  What kind of sign is that?  All I could think about was that movie about the girl that had the baby in Walmart and how 5's meant bad luck for her.  I drove very carefully the rest of the way home


  1. How weird!!! Glad it was a safe trip home!!!!!! And also, I did a blog post recently about how I was going to start teaching a class in how to take pictures while driving. So apparently you should sign up for my class! Except, we'd probably both get into a car accident on the way there.

  2. Wow! That is unusual! It's amazing that you were able to capture the moment! But, please, no more pictures while driving! You, too, Jill!

  3. Why am I hearing the Twilight Zone music playing??? :) lots of 5s going on, too weird. I think 3s are supposed to be bad luck or evil or something - so you should be good. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That is weird - but makes for a great blog post!

  5. Wait! There was a movie about a girl that had a baby in Walmart!!!!!!!!!!!!! And there were 55555s!

    Ummmm, you're not pregnant are you? And I'd stay away from Walmart too, if I were you!

  6. The movie is "Where the Heart is" with Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd, and Stockard Channing.

    No buns in the over here ;) and I wish I could stay away from Walmart, but unfortunately its one of the few places we have around here to shop.
